I am on about those pieces of equipment that have rollers on a frame (which is on castors), which fits in the front and the rear of the the large tyre/disc centre ,and a small hydraulic ram which takes the weight of the wheel ,so that one can pull the wheel of the tractor etc, and place it where you want it stored,or to one side if needing to do a job on the tractor,that was obscured by the wheel. Know doubt they are expensive BUT do they work , are some a lot better than others, castor wheels always seem to be very weak and dont last long, and I should think stop at the smallest stone with the weight of the very heavy tyre/wheel load . Are some of these tyre lifters Chinese junk.

I have one here that i got at auction iirc it was ex army, £70 quid i think it was.
there is no branding on it bar is black an yellow but it dose all it says on the tin.
you do need level ground to work it tho, the steel wheels on it out front are about 3.5" so it dont like anything more than a flat surface to roll on.
but for a one man job its priceless when you do use it.
dont have a pic sorry.

We have a Spaldings one, we share it with a neighbouring farmer. It's been fine. We have replaced all the castors. Was about £30 for replacements. Went for taller castors which makes it easier to push.
